Ranma - Ranma. On a training journey in the Province of China, Ranma Saotome and his father fall into the cursed springs at Jusenkyo.

The curse will revert when exposed to hot water. Ranma falls into the spring of a drowned girl. What Ramna as girl lacks in Strength and reach she makes up for in speed and agility.
